For this year’s World Toilet Day, UNDP-SIWI Water Governance Facility, SEI, WaterAid and Sida invite you to widen your perspective on Sanitation and Health.

World Toilet Day is about inspiring action to tackle the global sanitation crisis. Today, 2.3 billion people, 1 in 3, live without a decent toilet. In 2013, the United Nations General Assembly officially designated November 19 as World Toilet Day.
